President’s Message

June 2024

Can you believe it is June already. We have done lots of stuff and there is more to come. So hold onto your hats!! Lets do a quick recap of the last few weeks.  Since my last President’s message the club displayed several cars at the Signal Hill Centennial gathering.  We had two T’s and one modern on The Ford Factory Tour.  At the point Fermin Lighthouse Tour, we met up with four cars from the Orange County T Club and got a private tour of the lighthouse. That was a special treat.  June is going to be another active month. Several members are going to the National Tour in San Diego. There is the Cornerstone Church Father’s Day car show and pancake breakfast.  Also, the Palos Verdes Library Program.   So, this month get those Tin Lizzies checked out, oiled up, gassed up and get to an event.      

70th ANNIVERSARY PINS AND SHIRTS.

PINS are in. I handed out pins to those that attended the members that attended the May general meeting.  All members are entitled to one pin. If you would like extra’s they are $4. If you haven’t got one send me a text or email and we will get it to you. 

SHIRTS: John Traw has been working on the shirts and they are out to the shirt guy. As soon as they are in we will let you know. The shirt will be a black wash and wear polo with an anniversary loco on the left chest.  If you haven’t ordered and would like a shirt, please do the following.  Text me or send an email to longbeachmodeltclub@gmail.com with the following information.  NAME / SHIRT SIZE / NUMBER OF SHIRTS DESIRED.   

THINGS TO THINK ABOUT:

Several discussions have come up in the past month.

  1. Having the OC Model T club at the Fermin Tour was lots of fun and there is discussion to invite them to other tours.
  2. Ray Foster with the Model T group near Paso Robles contacted the Club and inquired if we would be interested in putting on a National Tour in the Paso Robles area in 2026. Ray belongs to a club that is small and spread over a large area. He mentioned there are lots of traffic free roads, hotels and places to tour such as wineries and museums.
  3. The Orange County T Club is planning a regional tour in the area of Solvang in 2025.

Just stuff to think about so we can get our cars on the road and have fun.
